Slight Return

The Ultimate Britpop Tribute Band

 
  • Highly Recommended
  • Viewed & Approved
  • UK Nationwide
Named after the classic Bluetones Britpop anthem, Slight Return pay tribute to the British Britpop music scene, bringing the recreated Britpop hits up-to-date in a powerful combination of passion and quality akin to the harder-hitting sound that the bands produced in their live shows.

Playing songs from Blur, Paul Weller, The Verve, Ocean Colour Scene, Supergrass, Pulp and, of course, Oasis, glory in the anthems that brought British alternative rock into the mainstream with a tip and a wink to the backbone of the movement from the likes of The Who, The Kinks and The Jam.

Slight Return are a five-piece, 100% live band performing all across the UK including support slots for Razorlight, The Icicle Works, SPACE and The Bluetones Mark Morriss.

Reviews of Slight Return

    5/5

    These guys are so talented and the set they played was a perfect Britpop greatest hits! It's the first wedding I've been to where everybody danced the whole night and a lot of the credit for that has to go to Slight Return. The guys were also really easy to deal with and learnt the song we requested for our first dance.

    What an absolute class act you guys are - I maybe slightly biased as it is 'my era' and I booked you but you were absolutely amazing. I actually got quite emotional stood in the middle singing along! On a booking level you were a pleasure to deal with. All the punters I spoke to loved it and you are more than welcome back in Penistone again.The quality of the performance was second to none and soon had 600 paying customers singing along to Britpop classics and helped us make loads for our local charities.

    We honestly can't thank you enough for last night! We had a fantastic time, as did all our friends! Was exactly how we wanted it to be!!We were so impressed! The whole band were so friendly, played an amazing set list, and really got our guests involved! Will definitely recommend this band to anyone looking for a band for any occasion! Thank you so much!

    Just got back from honeymoon, so I thought I'd drop you a quick email to thank you again for the amazing time you gave us and our wedding guests last Saturday. I can confidently say that every last one of us was blown away by your set Ė one of my mates said it was one of the top three gigs he's ever been to! I wanted to thank you all personally for a really great night's entertainment. Really top lads too, your personal congratulations and best wishes were a lovely touch. Take care, and if / when you play the Midlands, our paths will definitely cross again.

    Massive thank you for the other night. You were a HUGE hit, every person commented on how great you guys were. (Even the Americans who only knew Wonderwall). I think you made James's night/year. Will make sure to recommend you to anyone we speak with!!

    Slight Return were absolutely fantastic, they created a perfect atmosphere and filled the dance floor almost instantly. They were very professional from booking right through to the big day, and even emailed me afterwards to congratulate us. Loads of my guests commented on how good they were. Highly recommended!

    Itís March and still raining. Iíve trawled through some serious procrastination to decide where Iím going tonight; at least three decent live music offerings in Chester that I know of. And Iím sure the others were brilliant. Slight Return are, in their own words, a ďtribute to the British Britpop music sceneĒ and a ďpowerful combination of passion and quality.Ē A tribute band, to me, equals lunatic professionalism. To tribute a whole scene is a big ask. Good covers bands are rare enough, taking that enormous and unlikely step beyond random amateur recreation. But these guys really do tick the box of perfectionist, professional curators though. Friday night was time travel night with a set list that captured the point where British alt-rock got (largely) happy and popular (in a good way). A guitar dominated, looping and lurching opener with Ocean Colour Scene and The Riverboat Song; polished and convincing. Second song in and Iím braving the dance floor with the pointy shoed brigade. A few songs further and they offer me proof of their professionalism. A very-very-very long time ago I was lucky enough to make it into Brixton Academy and unfortunate enough to catch James on a sincerely off night. And Iíve heard James and Sit Down many times since: at home, on the radio, in DJ sets and covered-more-than-it-should-be. One of those beautiful songs that gets tired through over use. And on this particular Friday night I heard it come alive; all vitality restored. There were the things I expected; a good dose of Blur and Oasis both, Stereophonics, Bluetones and more, then some referencing back to foundation stones with The Who and The Jam. Slight Return switched between styles and musical voices with conviction; into acoustic things and seamlessly back out again. The magic of seeing grown men dance without a pint in hand happened repeatedly through the two sets. On any given set you pray for that one song you donít see coming; the track you might flick through on the album that becomes something else entirely live. So it was with Blurís Charmless Man. That perfect Blur poetry, simple, direct and delivered with energy. Slight Return are a good distance from being charmless. They are careful collectors and curators of songs; fine musicians and performers.!

    After carrying out extensive internet research for a britpop tribute band we choose to book Slight Return for our wedding and we genuinely couldn't have picked a better band for the occasion. From start to finish the guys had us all up dancing, singing and reminiscing of the 90's era with an array of awesome, hard hitting and incredibly accurate britpop classics. What a fantastic show they put on for us and if only we had been given a pound for every guest who commented on what a great band we had sourced! In addition to their undeniable musical talents, the way that the they dealt with our inquiries and kept us informed throughout the booking process was first class, something that we really appreciated during the stress of organising a wedding. A massive thank you to Slight Return - we truly hope to see you guys smashing out the tunes again some day.

    Slight Return are awesome! We were looking for a band to play live at Sarah's 30th birthday party with a 90's Britpop theme, and after an extensive search Slight Return stood out as the top contender. They traveled several hundred miles to be at the gig, and rocked the house. Unanimous rave reviews from our guests and Sarah had her best birthday ever. Clear information and friendly comms as well mean that I would book them again in a flash and recommend highly to others!
